Report: White Sox awarded Manny claim
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from Jayson Stark, the White Sox were awarded a waiver claim on Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez. Stark notes that the Rangers and Rays likely claimed the slugger as well, but that the White Sox won out due to their inferior record. 

 

Now that he is claimed, the White Sox can work out a deal with the Dodgers until midnight Tuesday, or Los Angeles could simply release Ramirez to Chicago. Ramirez has a no-trade clause that would him allow to negate a move, similarly to what Johnny Damon did earlier in the week with the Red Sox, but reports have stated Ramirez would accept a move to Chicago.

 

The former Red Sox left fielder is hitting .313/.407/.513 this season with eight homers and 40 runs batted in over 64 games. He has had three different stints on the disabled list this season with a calf strain.

Morris, Taylor discuss Pats loss on D&H
By: Jay Asser

Patriots running backs Sammy Morris and Fred Taylor joined the Dale & Holley show on Friday morning to recap the disappointing performance against the Rams on Thursday night.

 

"It's kind of difficult," Morris said of comparing the preseason to the regular season. "I hate ever trying to justify or downplay a loss, but at the same time it is preseason. There's not as much game plan, there's not as much starters playing, there's a lot of things different from the regular season. So I guess for me personally, I just kind of sense how I played and I guess the coaches just imagine how everyone played and everything that needs to be improved upon."

 

"Last night was just one of those things," Taylor said. "You never want to lose. No matter who the opponent is, you never want to lose, number one. I think to go out there, and seeing how our guys fought later in the second half,...

BC names Shinskie starting QB for opener

Boston College football coach Frank Spaziani made it official that Dave Shinskie wil be the starting quarterback for the Eagles when they open the season Sept. 4 against Weber State at Alumni Stadium. Shinskie, a 26-year-old sophomore who started 10 games last season, beat out sophomore Mike Marscovetra and freshmen Chase Rettig and Josh Bordner in camp.

 

“Dave had a very good camp,” Spaziani said in a statement. “He is the incumbent, and we won games with him last year. He has improved and he is certainly deserving.”

 

Spaziani also announced that redshirt freshman defensive tackle Dillon Quinn has been suspended for the first three games due to an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Pats' Neal on D&H: 'Lot of work to do'

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about the Patriots' disappointing performance in their 36-35 preseason loss to the Rams on Thursday night. Asked what the message was from the Patriots coaches following the game, Neal said: "Pretty much we've got a lot of work to do. And they're right. We'll look at film today and see how we can improve and just get back after it. Luckily, that was a preseason game. We were really trying to win that thing. We just couldn't pull it out."

 

Added Neal: "We have another week to work out the kinks. Hopefully, we can be a little more smooth in the next game and have a good feel going into the regular season."

 

A former collegiate wrestling standout, Neal discussed mixed martial arts fighting, with the UFC making a stop in Boston this weekend. Neal said he knows a number of UFC competitors but isn't likely to...
